    Tanks with tracks don't fair much better on ice. I was the tank commander on an M60A3 in Korea and ended up sliding down hill sideways on the ice. The driver could not see or control the tank, we (the crew) were all just along for the ride. After we got to the bottom and the driver got control again we continued on our way.

    Pretty much my point, even a tank can’t do it well . Don’t bother stay home, it can be the slickest stuff ever.

    Both of us are doing fine. I retired last year. If I had known what it’s like I would have done it earlier.
